After reading the reviews I recommended to my friends that we give this place a try. Boy was I sorry I did. First the utensils at my place setting we're dirty and needed to be replaced. We arrived around 930am thinking we had plenty of time for our 11am hotel checkout. After waiting a bit to place our order after... More

I have been coming here for years. The breakfast menu is varied and all entrees are flavorful. The portions are large and the prices fair. The back open air terrace is lovely on a breezy day. It's a bit of a tight squeeze however. Speaking of squeeze, the freshly squeezed OJ is a must order.

Located at 47 South Elmwood Avenue, Bird on the Roof has been there for 33 years. Serving only breakfast, we found the prices here to be very reasonable (a better deal than an establishment on Main Street) with heftier serving sizes. The menu has A LOT of choices, so I think you will have no problem finding something you'd like.... More

After walking into town we were excited about trying a new place for breakfast. That excitement quickly changed into disappointment. The home fries were black, burned and soaked in grease. My order of eggs over medium arrived brown and rubbery and was promptly sent back. Two minutes later the waiter was back poking the eggs with a fork to demonstrate... More

It is off the main road, which was good because it wasn't overly crowded. Breakfast is excellent and reasonable priced. I ate on Main St the first day of my trip but once I found this place, I was there daily. The frittata was delicious, the eggs and bacon was made to order and the service was friendly. Much better...

In through a little tourist shop, basic but friendly tables and service. A little oasis on a honky tonk beach street. Lots of cars outside on a rainy early summer day, so gave it a try. Pancakes more like crepes, best crispy bacon, smoked salmon eggs benedict. Delish. Coffee diner-ish. A comfy breakfast spot with very good classic fare.

Bird on the Roof is just a block form the ocean and, you dont have to wait hours like at Anthony's. Breakfast is very good and reasonable. Nice change of pace compared to other Montauk places.

We saw great reviews on Yelp and decided to pop in for brunch on a lazy Sunday afternoon. They were thinking of closing down the kitchen but decided to let us in because another table was just seated. We got served right away and the omelettes were absolutely delicious!

When Montauk gets crowded in the summer, possibly the staff will improve? The people that run this place seem to have other interests, notably the boutique adjacent to the dining area. The lady at the shop register seated us immediately, at a small table in the corner. We waited ten minutes to be asked by a busboy if we needed... More
